    Draymond Green insists we haven't seen the best of the Warriors yet

    The Golden State Warriors secured their second title in three years after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 in the finals last month.
    The Dubs confirmed their dominance by going an astonishing 16-1 throughout the playoffs and obliterated every opponent that stood in their way.
    The addition of Kevin Durant last summer almost guaranteed the Warriors another championship as he joined a star-studded roster featuring two-time MVP Stephen Curry and All-Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
    The Bay Area franchise also ended the regular season 67-15, a year after they'd beaten the Bulls' record by winning 73 games.
    They have become a formidable force and one of the best teams in NBA history, but according to Green, there's still more to come.
    The power forward, who is currently on vacation in the U.K., told the BBC: "I know we can and will get better. You have not seen the best of this team yet."
    It's difficult to see where the Warriors can get better, apart from maybe beating their own regular season record and going one better than the last campaign by achieving a perfect 16-0 in the playoffs.

    A team of this calibre can set itself goals of this nature but on the floor, they're as close to perfection as you'll ever see.
    They're currently way ahead of the pack and it's down to the rest of the league to catch up and pose a threat to them.
    One team certainly looking to do that is the Houston Rockets, who have acquired All-Star point guard Chris Paul and will pair him in a tantalising backcourt with James Harden.
    The Oklahoma City Thunder have also made one of the biggest moves of the summer by landing Paul George from the Indiana Pacers.

    Despite these eye-catching moves, Draymond doesn't think anything will change next year.
    "I still do not think there is anyone in the league that can beat us," he said.
    The 27-year-old also believes that the Warriors' dominance is having a good effect on the league as it's making their rivals take action.
    "What it is doing is forcing the other teams to get better, and that is great for the NBA," he said.
    If the Oakland-based outfit does get better next year it'll be a scary prospect for the other 29 teams but it's good to see some franchises willing to take on the challenge.
